Levaquin Manufacturer Hit With Three More Suits

Claims allege permanent tendon damage

By Jon Hood,  
The manufacturer of Levaquin is facing three lawsuits from consumers who claim the medication caused them permanent tendon injuries. The actions follow a similar lawsuit filed two weeks ago.

The latest suits were filed by Illinois residents who took the drug and say they suffered serious tendon damage as a result. All three groups are represented by Corey & Danis and the Lowe Law Firm, which also brought the earlier suit.

The plaintiffs allege that they were unaware of the increased risk of tendon rupture for patients over 60 or those who are on corticosteroid therapy, which uses steroids to fight osteoporosis, arthritis, and a number of other ailments.

Levaquin was prescribed for a sinus infection. I had the same problem with sleeping the other two people had. No sleep at night for 2 days.
